Description

Our ability to use language confidently and appropriately impacts on every aspect of our lives and learning.  Young children learn best when information is embedded in meaningful contexts that make sense to them—when they are immersed in oral language and print experiences and the focus on language is made a priority in everyday life.

Designed for early childhood educators in prior-to-school settings and the early years of school, Supporting literacy learning in the early years draws on contemporary research to identify optimum conditions for children’s language and literacy learning.  The book explores the connections between speaking and listening, reading and writing and offers practical advice and reflections on how to incorporate literacy learning into everyday practice.

Other topics explored in this publication include:

  • Discovering letters and sounds
  • Making and sharing alphabet books
  • Learning about reading
  • Developing a love of words
  • Learning about writing
  • Reading and writing come together in play

Also available in e-version here.
